Owls supposedly bring good luck. I'd keep it onboard.
krschneider
owls are damn fine pilots! And I'm pretty sure there aren't any rodents under the seats. :D

That's right!

“Hi” said the owl. “I just got back from the USA where I amassed 250 hours and I’m your new F/O”!

I just spit a little of my beer up reading that.

Cheep beer?
xtoler
LOL, cheep beer. It was a hoot!

Who's first officer?

Maybe it just wanted to know how many licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

Hello gentlemen. I am your Designated Pilot Examiner. I will be evaluating your performance. Please take your seats and demonstrate.

How did the owl get inside the plane especially the cockpit? They have a pretty wide wingspan. They really aren't known for walking..

Aircraft was probably being ground/cabin serviced overnight. In good weather, it is common to leave entry doors open. Owl flew in unnoticed, landing in "front office". just a guess.

Owl is from customs, checking on a possible vermin incursion.
dabeed
was that the Trip Advisor owl?
KobeHunte
he was rating the airline and got caught..

Feel-good story in more ways than one!
How pleasant to not hear the usual rants about third world airlines and their crews. Even from the usual suspects! Cheers!
whip5209
This owl confirms that Jet Airways is "fly by night". And that's just a joke I thought of after reading your post. I have no idea what this airline is like.
ravanviman
Actually quite clever!
rapidwolve
Going by what 1 of the other posters asked, I'm glad no one actually asked the owl for a passport. Can you imagine the conversation that would have taken place...and gone on for hours?
Customs: "Do you have a current passport sir?"
Owl: "WHOO"
Customs: "You sir"
Owl: "WHOO"
You catch the drift
CWReed
Ha!...What a hoot!!
rapidwolve
Smart bird!...wanted to get to England but preferred someone else do the flying!

Headlines Reads....New Service Animal lands in cockpit!

Did anybody say WHO yet?

A wise old owl sat on an oak,
The more he saw, the less he spoke,
The less he spoke, the more he heard,
Why can't we be like that wise old bird?
elumntsa50
The natural pilot :)
CWReed
Yes! Just looking to have someone else do the flying to London Heathrow!!:)

Very sweet. Barn owls live inside structures. It isn't a far stretch to think he has a home in a hangar nearby.
picturetaker
I wonder WHO let him in?

BWAAHAHAHA! :D

What a hooot!

Was it flight number 9 ¾?

Per e-mail question to FlightAware, owl was not destroyed. It was handed over to a wildlife group.

Did it have a current passport ?:-)

The Owl said " WHO " is on board today
dovekiller
Born to fly! Why not be a 777 cockpit´s team mate?
WhiteKnight77
Hey, why are you taking me away? I just wanted someone else to do the flying for a change and I was dreaming of seeing London! ;)
amyalbert75
Someone should have claimed it for an emotional support animal.
kiwipop
I'm getting an emotional support horse. Will it be ok to take it on my next flight?

Who. Who. Who......

Great post thanks Cade

I agree with Ian! Also, really do like Ian's FA pics!! Cheers!!

Secure aircraft?

Yes, but he has to leave the cockpit before push-back.

That's a Barn Owl. Was surprised to find they are also native to India.I checked. Funny story and comments.
joelwiley
Of course the air crew got on second. Haven't you heard "Who's on First?"

Barn Owls don't hoot like most owls do. Instead, they make a ominous harsh scream that lasts about 2 seconds. Unfortunately in many African countries, they are regarded as a sign of evil and doom to come.
On the contrary they are avid catchers of rodents like mice & rats.
The Great Plague that killed 300 to 400 million people worldwide was caused by fleas living on these rodents.

The are a sound of doom . . . to mice, rats, voles, and gophers.

The owl just wanted to visit his relatives in Jolly ol' England, maybe for a pint or two.
Jpatmagnenat
Hi, I’m checking if the maintenance has been set and you are able to fly safely...
Viperguy46
Just the new upgraded auto pilot and night flight officer! What's on second!
rlhesler
Of course he was their ETOPS Owl!!!
julianjim
Okay, it said..."Who Me"! It is cute.
susandale42
That plane with the owl in the cockpit looked pretty worn out!
PJSalazar
The Owl Club will consider making her, him a Honorary Member.
gageaa
From the looks of that engine and all the people standing around it in the second pic, that triple’s not going anywhere soon.
gageaa
Maybe the bird misheard that they needed to look at the engine “owl” instead of “cowl.”
palak30
Whooo needs night vision!
abody1963
Owl wants to migrate to Britain
Gentilo
A very good omen !!

As much as I would like to read this article, it's complaining about my ad blocker. So I guess they are out of luck (and maybe I am also). If everybody ran an ad blocker, we'd quickly sort out the wheat from the chaff.

The ad blocker popup went away when I hit the "escape" key. Always worth a try.

They released the bird, it was reported in the local media also. I don't think anyone will kill the bird for entering the plane.
whip5209
Nah, they released it. Owls are good ju.
KobeHunte
you know that they released it?
whip5209
Said so in my link I posted above.

https://www.mid-day.com/articles/owl-found-in-cockpit-of-jet-airway-flight-at-mumbai-airport/20354159
KobeHunte
oh ok.. and anyways.. they aren't just going to "kill" a owl for no big reason..
whip5209
That would have been a ridiculous thing to do. If they were worried about the owl being near the airport, they could release it some distance away.
KobeHunte
exactly..
rapidwolve
Actually you would be surprised. I too, thot similarly in the past. but was pleasantly surprised by ethics of overseas sanctuaries.

Maybe we are just happy with a feel good story and not having to put up with all of the MH370 BS..!!!

Oh, and it is at 69 up votes now..!!!
KobeHunte
now 78.. guess it really is something else to be happy about than the other BS.

Apparently the squawk struck a chord with the Harry Potter demographic. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Do owls even squawk?
